The Loar, a division of The Music Link, has debuted a pair of new smaller body guitars during this week’s Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, CA.
The LO-215 and 216 both feature a full-length, dreadnaught scale neck (25.4”) and a 1-11/16” nut on a body size more commonly found on parlor guitars. Both models use a solid Sitka spruce top, with the 215 made with flamed maple back and sides, while the 216 uses mahogany.
According to a company press release…
“These are unique flat top offerings that give players the chance to sample everything great about a small body instrument, but still benefit from the extra volume of a longer scale. The dreadnought scale length means that the strings have greater excursion, resulting in more punch and projection than you’d expect from a small-body guitar.”
The 215 is offered for $374.99 and the 216 $359.99. The guitars are available in natural, sunburst and black finishes.
